H.W.

which lead to percentages of more than 100%

Fractions, decimals and percentages

Simple interest calculations Discuss why reducing a quantity by 10%, and then by 10% again, is not the same as reducing a quantity by 20%

Fractions, decimals and percentages

Simple interest calculations (algebraic and calculator use; website calculator) Discuss why reducing a quantity by 10%, and then by 10% again, is not the same as reducing a quantity by 20%

Powers, indices and calculations

Revisit Calculate with numbers in standard form with/without a calculator (including practical examples) Round numbers in standard form to 1sf to estimate/check calculations (without calculator) Extended Practical examples involving very large and/or very small numbers (eg. examples in astronomy and biology) Compare the relative sizes of things using standard form. How much bigger is an elephant compared to an ant in mm or cm?

Coordinates and graphs

Add a point to a coordinate grid to complete a given shape (parallelogram; rhombus; trapezium; square) by coordinates only, not graphically. Use the formula to calculate the mid-point of a line segment

H.W.

Coordinates and graphs

Understand how to represent points in 1-D, 2-D and 3-D Write down an equation for a line parallel to the coordinate axes; Draw a line parallel to the coordinate axes given the equation

Coordinates and graphs

Find the value of a in y = ax from the graph of in y = ax (by considering number pattern in the coordinates) Find the value of a in y = ax from the graph of in y = ax (by considering number pattern in the coordinates) Produce a table of values for a linear relation and plot the points on a grid (including fractional coefficients of x)

Properties of shapes

Name a polygon with 3, 4, ..., 10 sides, and Identify triangles by their properties (scalene, isosceles, equilateral, right-angled, obtuse, and acute)

H.W.

Use the angle properties of triangle to find missing angles Prove the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two opposite interior angles Identify quadrilaterals by their properties (trapezium, parallelogram, rhombus, rectangle, square, kite and arrowhead)

Properties of shapes

Use previous lesson’s topic to extend project, and create shape property sequences and link with previous week.
Use triangles to find the angle sums of polygons Use the angle properties of triangles to find missing angles in combinations of triangles

Properties of shapes

Prove the angle sum in a triangle is 180
